WGS Alumni Group
A message from WGS alumni:
“Have you graduated from WGS at USF and miss being a part of a feminist community? Then get involved with the new WGS Alumni Group!
WGS alumni are currently working on an exciting project to form an official USF WGS Alumni Group (UWAG), which will give former WGS students a way to stay involved in a feminist community that upholds WGS’s values and goals of social justice and change. The WGS Alumni Group will also allow former WGS students to continue giving back to our local community and maintain strong connections with fellow like-minded USF Bulls.
Our Alumni Group will be based on the interests and goals of us – the WGS alumni. We will be hosting at least four events a year, either in-person or virtual, and any proceeds from our events will go towards creating a scholarship fund for WGS! What kinds of events or initiatives would you like to see from the WGS Alumni Group?
If you are interested in learning more, sharing ideas, attending events, or volunteering to be part of the UWAG leadership team, please email the WGS Alumni Group chair, Katie Maloney.”
